The Relaxation Response

It neutralizes the effects of stress 

Ever wonder how to naturally relax your mind and body more effectively?

Part of Shirodhara’s strength is to tone down the stress level your mind and body is enduring. Its treatment generates a sense of calmness, promotes your relaxed state, free from any form of distress. The process of pouring the oil is termed as the relaxation response.

This is a normal process when your body is at the state of relaxation, your stress hormones minimize while the hyper-alert brain currents or commonly known as the beta waves shifts into the relaxed-alert current or the alpha waves.

With Shirodhara’s ability to neutralize the effects of stress, it shrinks the respiration rate, contracts diastolic blood pressure, and slows your heart rate. Toning down the adverse effect of stress is an important means to achieve longevity of life. Indulging yourself with a single hour Shirodhara session can potentially initiate an impacting relaxation response the moderates the effects of stress. It could last for hours, or even days.

    • It lessens your anxiety and depression- benefits of Ayurveda

The benefits of Ayurveda in Shirodhara include the activation of an impacting Ayurvedic energy point termed as ajna marma. In Ayurvedic medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, activating the point between eyebrows is responsible for discharging your anxiety, distress, or even depression without having to endure the fear or pain of needles.

    • It revives your instinct

In the derivation of spiritual traditions, the point or area between your eyebrows is known as the third eye. It is also considered as the seat of spiritual awakening or your sixth chakra– home of intuition. This heavenly eye manifests the ability to reach or access more likely the surreal dimension.

When you’re third eye opens, the life force or prana circulates freely throughout the srotas. Srotas are energy vessels that are cleaned. Emotional blockages get flushed out through these valuable vessels. Resulting you to be free from any sorts of emotional discomforts and opens you to a far-reaching awareness.

Ayurvedic medicine is looked up as one of the best exponents in combatting this common dilemma. The Shirodhara treatment particularly minimizes your brain waves to a more relaxed alpha state. Thus, resulting in a better flow of sleeping hormones for you to doze off comfortably without the mind and internal distractions.

Shirodhara is widely known for its effectiveness in relaxing excessive Vata that are responsible for unwanted emotions. And it is through the steady stream of oil being poured that balances the shifting nature of the Vata dosha.
